Hi all,<p>I am in need of a new trim piece...I am not sure how to post a pic to show exactly which one. It is on the passenger side, back door, runs horizontially mid-door (I suspect to fend off door dings etc.), about 3 inches wide - for my 99 S70 AWD. The car is white. I am in seattle, WA.<p>I was curious if it is recommended that I take it to the stealer or to a body shop. I was thinking that if I took it to a body shop, they would have to spray the piece...and I could have some other clean-up work done (e.g. spray bumpers). Thoughts?<p>thanks much!<br>

Buy one from a Junkyard off the same color car. Shop until you find one. Or post an ad in the want ads for "door trim" or "door molding" with the same level of detail as this post.<p>They attach with double sided molding tape, sort of a foam with adhesive on both sides. Get some from an auto parts store or an auto body supply store.

Door molding is what it's called, they also need to be painted, they come primered.)<br>Not that expensive new and when they're removed off a car, the person who removes it usually messes it up so bite the bullet and buy a new molding

Re: (JRL)

Thanks JRL. I had the car at my local SAAB/Volvo wrench...very reputable...but dealer prices. They were going to fix it for $300+paint. Does that sound out of line?
